Fair Housing and Reasonable Accommodations

Note: Online Registration has ended for this course.  If you would like to be added to the wait list, please email training@quadel.com.

This two-day Fair Housing and Reasonable Accommodations course is intended to introduce and/or familiarize you with fair housing laws and prepare you to assist individuals and families who may encounter discrimination in their search for housing or as a tenant. The course materials will identify the classes of individuals that are protected by fair housing laws and regulations, and prepare you to explain basic fair housing requirements to applicants, participants and landlords. By the end of the training you should be able to identify how fair housing requirements apply to your job responsibilities and you should feel confident to assist applicants and participants who report they have been treated in a discriminatory manner. You will also be familiar with the resources available to assist you and your clients with fair housing issues.

Discrimination is making a decision in favor of or against a person on the basis of the group, class, or category to which the person belongs rather than according to the individual merits of the situation. In federal law the groups, classes or categories are known as “Protected Classes.”

Federal law also requires that “reasonable accommodations” be made to enable persons with disabilities to access and use housing assistance. A reasonable accommodation is a change in rules, policies or practices that make it possible for a disabled person to live in their housing.

The course is one and a half days of training and exercises.  There is an optional certification exam that requires an additional half day for review and test taking.

About This Training
Your multifamily property’s Project-Based Section 8 HAP (PBS8) Contract expires at year-end. So, how well do you understand the contract renewal options consistent with HUD Section 8 Renewal Policy? Does your expiring contract qualify for renewal under the Mark-Up-to-Market (MUTM) option? Will the renewal application require a Rent Comparability Study? Will rent adjustments in subsequent years be subject to Operating Cost Adjustment Factor (OCAF) or budget-based rent adjustment (BBRI)? If your day to day job responsibilities involve developing and implementing strategies to maximize your PBS8 contact, this back-to-basics webcast is for you.

Join host Vinnie Viola and special guests Nicole Walls and Angela Garland of Quadel Consulting & Training for an insightful discussion of the various options and requirements for PBS8 contract renewals in a two-hour live training. Nicole and Angela, as Managing Director and Contract Renewal Manager, respectively, for Quadel’s performance-based contract administration team, manage an extensive caseload of contract renewals for the States of Indiana and North Carolina in liaison with Indiana Housing and Community Development and the North Carolina Housing Finance Agency. They will highlight key sections in HUD’s Section 8 Renewal Policy Guide and offer practical tips to help ensure success with your next PBS8 contract renewal application. Contact Vinnie with questions about this training at vinnie@birchislandrec.com or 617-905-6340.
